Nibbly Bits: My Natural Colour


People like to dress up. We like to make ourselves look a certain way. Not all of us, but many of us. And even those who don't think they do, are still engaging in the curation of their appearance in a certain way.


I used to struggle with this idea out of naivety and ignorance. Then I got real, and realized that even to not make a choice regarding one's appearance is still a choice. It's one of those cyclical head-spinning ideas. Kind of like the inescapable idea that the only constant thing we can hold onto in life is change itself. Change. And Keith Richards. Almost forgot about Keith there.


We're free to style ourselves how we like to. It's something that must be embraced. It's a tenet of freedom, so to speak.


We're talking about people, to be clear. I think it's important to point out that most blonde people aren't really blonde. And I want to be clear that I am 1000% cool with that.


The thing I am wondering about, is why the hell do we want to colour our wine?


You might be thinking, "What the hell is he talking about now?!"


Why would we colour our wine? Why would anyone change the natural colour of a wine?


I can tell you right now that the wine did not come up with that idea on its own.


But winemakers & producers do it all the time.


This is not my essay on the subject. This is just me asking a simple question for you to meditate on.


Why?
